Newton Running is sponsoring the Tactical Fitness Competition on May 7, 2011 at Portland, Oregon's Portland International Raceway.
This unique event challenges athletes and tactical professionals in practical events that will determine the best all-around team. The events are specially designed to test strength, power, agility and stamina of the tactical professional.
Four-man teams compete to see who is the best tactical fitness professional in the Northwest. Divisions are broken into 3 categories:
- Tactical Professional (Law Enforcement, Fire, First Responders, etc.)
- Civilian (personal trainers, fitness freaks, general tough guys, etc.)
- Pro/Exhibition (Pro athletes & specialty teams)
The competition is a combination of six team and individual events. The specific events will only be disclosed to the competitors on the day prior to the event. The competition will run from 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. followed by an awards celebration. Four of the events will be individual with the remaining two comprising team challenges. Each team will designate one member for each individual event, with no repeat competitors.
This unique event will be the first of its kind; challenging athletes and tactical professionals in practical events that will determine the best all-around team. The events are specially designed to test strength, power, agility and stamina of the tactical professional.
Proceeds are going to help fund Called To Rescue, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to fighting child trafficking.
